The Outdoor Ministry of the MN Conference UCC offers events for individuals and families of all ages, abilities, and stages of life to experience rest, renewal, and reconnection through a retreat or camp experience. Our goal is to create opportunities for people across the Conference to fall in love with God’s creation, encounter the sacred in the natural world, and experience the deep interconnectedness of nature, human community and one’s own soul.
